A to Z Challenge Reflections

A-to-Z_Reflection_[2014]Ever hear the phrase, “bit off more than you can chew”? I think that is the theme for me. I chose a hard topic and was successful, but wanted to start in March and finish up in two weeks and leave April as a way to catch up on things I’ve fallen behind on.

That is not what happened.

Zero Approval Gambit & Zero-Sum Game — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

ZThe end is now. We have finally come to the last letter. What a trip it has been. I made a challenge almost too difficult. It pushed my creativity to a whole new level. I feel like crying. OMG. I’m really more glad than anything else. While I am happy with the turnout, I am happy to bring my blog back to normal in May.

In this challenge, I’ve learned a lot. More than I thought I knew, and I helped many others learn as well. That’s the biggest compliment of all. I’ve also made some friends, many of whom I wish to know for a very long time.

Today is Zero Approval Gambit and Zero-Sum Game.

Yandere & Your Usefulness— A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

YHaving already made up my own term to satisfy X, I thought I might have to do that for Y. Not quite. Almost, but luckily I found two good terms. The end is nigh, and soon I can go back to trying to become a successful author. Bringing normalcy to my blog. I’m happy and sad.

Today will be Yandere and Your Usefulness.

I’m sure I’ll have something more profound tomorrow, but those who have supported me, you deserve a lot of my thanks. You definitely made this worth doing. Show me your love down below.

Xanatos Gambit & xX Centric Plots — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

XHardest letter to date. I’m betting it will be the hardest of the last 3. How do I measure how hard this was? I have about 6 different resources to find terms to transform into literary terms for my blog. With X, I found only 1 in all of those resources. The second one, I made up. You can do a Google search for both terms, figure out which one is made up, or just read below. Do note, that even though one is made up, I feel that it is still important to know.

So get ready for Xanatos Gambit and xX Centric Plots. And for this one, working as hard as I have on this letter, I really want to hear your responses.

Wild Card & Will to Live — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

WWe willfully wantingly wrangled while whailing, where wallfish wobbling when worrying working weapons without what were weakness won why was writing whimsically what waiting wok walk while whipping wang wipe.
-W for What the fuck!?

My play on V for Vendetta

Today is Wild Card and Will to Live, both which describe characters.

Vice & Virtue — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

VDown to the final 5. Am I the only one to notice that the 5th to last letter of the alphabet is also the Roman Numerical for the number 5? I have a soft spot for V, as it is part of my last name. It is though an uncommon letter, like U, but more of a bitch to deal with.

Today is Vice & Virtue. Two important words for character development.

As much as I want this to be over, I’m going to miss the excitement each day seeing the new responses.

Unfettered & Unperson — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

UAs much fun as this has been, I am ready to be done with this. Is there anyway for us to end the alphabet here? Stop it at U? Probably not since my name would then be Chris Uoteu. Plus, we’d lose out on X, and then how would we find porn in a video store?

Today we have Unfettered and Unperson. Weird terms, but then U is an unusual letter.

Always a shout out to my fans and their support, if you get a chance, click on their names or check out their websites to find out all the interesting things about them. They are quite wonderful people.

Thinking Out Loud & 3rd-Person Narrative — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

TWe are now on T, or as I call it, The beginning of The end. This experience has been like running a marathon. We are past the runners high and we see the goal in sight, and yet all we want to do is stop and fall over. But we know that in stopping, we won’t start again, so we must push on through to the end.

Today we have Thinking Out Loud and 3rd-Person Narrative.

The battle is soon over and I know each of you will be there until the very end.

Self-Serving Bias & Stockholm Syndrome — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

SHere we are at S. I’m running out of clever things to say. Maybe I am not as clever of a writer as I thought. We are nearing the end for the challenge, with only 8 letters left.

Today we tackle Self-Serving Bias and Stockholm Syndrome. Words you may have heard often, but like many other words, never thought of implementing them as literary terms.

Hard to think that after this month, I won’t hear from many of you. I certainly hope I do, but I will cherish these last few days as we complete the challenge.

Quacksalver & Quisling — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

QSince I started this contest, this was the one letter I had been dreading. My usual resources turned up nothing and I had to be rather creative in using Q. I’m glad I found something, but I imagine my last 3 letters will be equally challenging.

Today I am doing Quacksalver and Quisling. Such weird terms, but then again, Q produces some weird sounding words.

I look forward to hearing from you on the bottom, as I want to know what you think.
